How To Have A DIY Spa Day 9

A spa day right about now would be perfect! Even though we are “staying home” (besides essential work and travel), “washing our hands”, and “practicing social distancing”, that doesn’t mean that we can’t pamper ourselves! 

Here are four easy ways to have a diy spa day. 

1. Fill the room with the scent of a spa! You may do this by burning a candle or spraying the room with air freshner. I recently purchased the “Spa Day” and “Lavender” room sprays from Country Scents Candles - https://www.countryscentscandles.com/store/tmack1/ or www.tamarahmack.com


  • 2.
    Soak in your tub or take a long warm shower. 

  • 3. After soaking or taking a shower, then apply a moisturizing lotion to your entire body. 

    4. After you’ve done 1, 2, and 3, then sit on your couch for about 30 minutes and read a magazine or start reading a book (no social media, you should be relaxing). Or take a 30 minute nap. Just allow time for your body to rest and reset. 

    What are some of your tips for a diy at home spa day? Feel free to let me know! 

    Stay Safe! Wash Your Hands! Practice Social Distancing!

    How To Manage Small Spaces Using An Over The Door Shoe Organizer

    How To Manage Small Spaces Using An Over The Door Shoe Organizer 5

    An over the door shoe organizer isn’t just for shoes! It’s a great organizer to use anywhere in your home! This type of organizer may be used on the back of your pantry door (use to place serving utensils, measuring utensils, or utensils that are not often used), or on the back of your laundry door (use to place cleaning supplies or other useful household items). 

    We are going to focus on using an over the door shoe organizer in your bathroom or bedroom closet. 

    Bathroom: Place the over the door shoe organizer on the back of your bathroom door. Add items that you use very regularly (this will make your morning routine much easier). Add items such as: lotion, deodorant, hair spray, flat iron, hair clips, hair comb, hair brush, makeup brushes, facial cleansers, toothbrush, toothpaste, mouth rinse, face towels, hand towels, etc. 

    Bedroom closet: Place the over the door shoe organizer on the back of your bedroom door. Add items that you use very regularly. Add items such as: t-shirts, socks, undergarments, sleepwear, belts, scarves, workout clothes, etc. Remember to add items that do not need ironing. Adding these items  to the over the door shoe organizer will allow for more drawer space in your bedroom.

    The Ultimate Way To Spring Clean Your Closet In Three Days

    The Ultimate Way To Spring Clean Your Closet In Three Days 1

    Over the years, how many times have you told yourself “I’m going to clean out my closet this spring?” Don’t worry, I have a very easy way for you to accomplish this task. 

    First, decide which three days you are going to set aside for the task. Are you going to do it Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday of next week? After you’ve decided which three days, then set aside a few hours on those three days to actually complete the task. 

    Day 1: Go through all of your shirts, blouses, t-shirts, jackets, coats, and sweaters. Whatever is too small or you don’t wear anymore, donate it to charity or consign it. (At the end of the three days, then you can deliver the unwanted items to charity or a consignment store.) 

    Day 2: Go through all of your jeans, trousers/slacks, shorts, skirts, and dresses. Whatever is too small or you don’t wear anymore, donate it to charity or consign it. 

    Day 3: Go through all of your shoes, underwear, socks and sleepwear. Whatever is too small or you don’t wear anymore (minus the underwear) donate it to charity or consign it. You’ve completed the task, now go donate or consign the unwanted items (minus the underwear)!
